  • Jbrowne IconBalanceOptimization.jpeg Balance for Optimization: Flips and creates edges that simplify the navmesh (useful for getting rid of "spider webbing"). Be sure to check your navmesh for errors afterwards, sometimes this command gives unwanted results.
  • Jbrowne IconFindCover.jpeg Find Cover Edges for Current Cell: Finds cover in all navmeshes in the loaded cell.
  • Jbrowne IconFinalize.jpeg Finalize Current Cell's Navmeshes: Finalizes loaded cell's navmeshes.

  • Jbrowne IconCutSelectedObject.jpeg Cut Selected Object: Select an Object by holding CTRL-ALT and then Left Clicking on the object.
